This might be a rules violation, but I just had to share.
Background: I'm selling a guitar, this guy offers a Spider III 75W as trade. I tell him I need cash for a new amp that I'm buying. This is his response:

"The Line 6 Spider I mentioned IS an Amp .....if you never heard one you really need to go to Guitar Center & give it a test run....it's is absolutely freakin' insane & mine is new (in Box)....if your a "Tube" snob (no offense)...you'll be amazed at the Tone (& volume-75 watts) not to mention the 400 amp/effects presets...say goodbye to 60 pounds of Pedals.....trust me....it would be very good Trade."


Wow, eh?

excellent.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

LMAO!!!!!

Priceless xD
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Its a sad fact, but some people are in love with their Spiders. Those players normally are newbies or have no ear for tone. Go tell him to compare the preset on a Line 6 of a JCM or a Mesa Rec, and compare it to a real one.

^ exactly. the correct response to anyone selling you something who says it's amazing is, "then why are you getting rid of it?"

Update: I sent him a nice snide response about how his amp sucked (and I've owned them)
Here's what he said:
"ahhhhh.....you are a Tube Snob after all.....why did you ever want to contaminate Your Mesa Express by plugging that Mexican piece of Crap into it ....what were you thinking ???? .....and what was I thinking ????.....'cause your your Mex Tele sells for over 10 times the Price of my Spider...right ?.....no problem.....I'm sure someone is buying your highly sought after (hand made) Tele as we speak. "

Saw that one coming.

Out of interest, how's the Pro for recording? I'm thinking about a 'top and I've got a Mac, so, yeah if you could...

It's absolutely great. I love it. It helps to have the right interface, etc. You can't touch it for "affordable" home recording.

This.

Thanks for the word up on the Macbook, it looks a great package.. But it's £200($400) more over here than in the US, which is pretty disappointing. Not sure I can realistically afford to shell that out for essentially something i've already got, but with the portability. Hm.

what's wrong with that? he's clearly trying to get rid of it/get a good deal, since he thinks you aren't knowledgeable about amps and such. i'd do the same.

haha. my issue is that half of that came after I told him I was buying an Orange TT to run in stereo with my Mesa Express. Which means that I at least have some sort of obvious knowledge. And I'm pretty sure he has none.

Amen. I'm completely open to people having their own opinions on amps, but I know you know nothing if you think those are good amps. And I'd really appreciate it if people wouldn't try to convince me that their spider is a gift from Buddha.

So now since people are proud of Line 6 Spider's and Marshal MG's the new defense against those few is "Well you just have no idea what tone is."

lol. Feeling better?

*EDIT*

Although I defend people's ability to choose their own sound, I refuse to defend the quality of an MG amplifier. They really are sub-sub-sub-standard amplifiers.
